Sapphire is September's gemstone

From the Greek word, "sappheiros" meaning "lapis lazuli," being lapis, a Latin word for precious stone, and lazuli, a Persian term for blue, Sapphire has been a cherished gemstone for thousands of years.

When you think of a sapphire, it usually comes to your mind the blue variety of the corundum family. Still, except for the red variety - the Ruby - sapphires come in a rainbow of multiple colors and tonalities, such as violet, green, yellow, orange, pink, purple, crystal, gray, brown, and black with many colors intermediate hues.

Usually associated with royalty and romance, sapphires are a symbol of purity and wisdom.
